Thanks Keith, |
...and thanks Rob for the other reply,
I'll see if I can check the switch out and see what's going on at that
end... but.. why would the other XW6000 boxes be working alright at
boot and not these particular boxes?
Also is there away to manually configure the module/eth0 device to just
start up with these settings?
....deep breath.... and.. Why would the switch be auto-negotiating with
the module/device after it is unloaded and reloaded and not a boot?
Would there be a difference?

XW6000 per se, it is a problem with the switch not matching the
speed/duplex setting of the XW6000.
If you check your switch, I think you'll find that either
auto-negotiation is turned off on that port, or it is not set at 100FD.
You can see in your previous posting that XW6000 is not
autonegotiating at boot, so either the switch must do it, or that port
on the switch must be manually set to match the speed/duplex of the
There was a time in the not too distant past, before N-Way
auto-negotiation came out, when you would have the same result as you
are seeing if your machine's NIC and the attached switch were BOTH
trying to auto-negotiate. (but that probably has nothing to do with
this problem, but might explain why your card is not set to
auto-negotiate at boot.) N-way cleared up that problem.
